* In ''Literature/AlexisCarew: HMS Nightingale'', Alexis' first officer Midshipman Villar is attracted to Marie, a single mother Alexis rescued from Giron in ''The Little Ships'', but Villar walked in on them sleeping in Alexis' bed on the way to drop Marie off with Alexis' grandfather. Once he finally manages to work around to saying what he thought, Alexis bursts out laughing and explains that no, both of them are straight and they only slept in the same bed because installing a second bunk in the captain's quarters wasn't practical for either of them (Marie had to be able to get up in the middle of the night to deal with her baby, and Alexis is too short to comfortably climb to an upper bunk).
-->'''Villar:''' You said your sweetheart was French!\\
'''Alexis:''' Yes, French. A Frenchman. A French ''man'', Mister Villar -- a lieutenant in their navy.

** ''Community'' does this a lot. There is a RunningGag that Pierce thinks both Jeff and Britta are gay. One episode had Britta make friends with a lesbian for the sole purpose of gaining "progressive tolerant liberal" points and claiming moral superiority over her friends. It turned out that the other girl was straight, thought ''Britta'' was a lesbian, and made friends with ''her'' for the exact same reason.

** ''Community'' does this a lot. There are plenty of jokes about both Jeff and Britta being mistaken for gay (mostly by Pierce). One whole episode revolved around Britta making friends with a lesbian pretty much for the sole purpose of lording her progressive hip liberal cred over everyone else. It turned out that the other girl was also straight, thought Britta was a lesbian, and made friends with her for the same reason.

See also MistakenForIndex. When the character probably ''is'' gay but is in denial, they're in the TransparentCloset. When the Character is heterosexual but acts like the CampGay stereotype they're CampStraight. Due to the common belief that AllMenArePerverts and AManIsAlwaysEager, any male character who isn't shown to jump at the chance to have sex with a woman ''will'' be mistaken for gay (if not actually gay) by the audience and possibly by the other characters as well (especially male characters). This tripe, when used is considered a use of HoYay due to the fact that it is a trope concerning homosexual themes.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Happens to James in the episode where he decides to dress up as "The Flaming Moltres". It happens in the form of a joke from Jessie when she and Meowth get embarrassed after James starts acting flamboyantly in his Moltres outfit. When Meowth asks where James got the outfit, Jessie responds "I think that costume came right out of his closet" which is basically a coming out of the closet joke.

** Its SpinOff ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'' has a female protagonist who shares a room and is HeterosexualLifePartners with an openly lesbian woman that currently does not have a girlfriend and is the most vocal of the two concerning how close they are to each other. The perfect recipe for making people that don't know them personally misread the situation. The protagonist herself has very heterosexual crush... on the emperor of her faction, which gives her plenty of pre-existing competition.
